that the israeli government is interested in occupying iran and i don't think the obama administration wants to do so. it seems that the strategy, if there is one, is to make some kind of surgical strike to knock out the iranian nuclear capacity. and i'm just curious, is that possible or is that an example of faith-based strategy lacks and for the general in particular, in that you have raised the importance of understanding how the opponent is going to respond, what is the likely spot of the iranians to what is, what we hope to be a surgical strike such as the israeli delivered on iraq? >> i think we got it. why do they deal with iraq and iran, and there's another issue, which i want to address. on iraq, the question is for some, who bears responsibility? i think the answer is very obvious, we do. we started the war. the iraqis didn't attack us. we went in. some may feel for legitimate reasons, others may feel for dubious reasons. some like myself feel for fraudulent reasons. but in any case the fact is we started it so we are responsible for what happened. i wish we had done better, even though

, bitter conflict based on falsehoods and hyperbole. it took president obama fulfilling his campaign promise to end the iraq war and we are grateful that he brought the war to an end. but we must not forget how we got into the war in the first place. so that these mistakes are not repeated. we were told there were weapons of mass destruction. we were warned about mushroom clouds. now i offered an amendment at the time that would have taken us down a different path. it would have required the united states to work through the united nations inspectors and maximizing diplomacy to determine whether or not iraq was developing weapons of mass destruction. unfortunately my amendment failed by a vote of 72-355. what happened from there we all know the tragic consequences. president bush dragged this country into an unnecessary war. no weapons of mass destruction were ever found. the cost of the iraq war soared far beyond what was projected. we lost 4,400 american troops in iraq and over 32,000 were wounded, not to mention iraqis. once the war started, many of us in congress quickly organize
so. and we must support president obama and senator finestien comprehensive effort to reform the gun laws, i support state and federal effort to keep the weapons off of our streets and out of our homes. i have directed our city agencies and law enforcement officials to move towards plans of action, to prioritize and create solutions that impact policy changes and take aggressive actions against the moment egregious types of gun violence and we are working hard and making more plans for more deeper, more wider gun buy back programs and events that will take place later this year. but no single mayor can stop gun violence alone. if we work together, as a city, as a community, as a region, as a state, and now, as importantly as a nation, if we work together as a nation, we can make real impact. forget the polls. forget the politics. forget the threats of this lobbying group or that lobbying group. we are doing what is necessary and what is the right thing to do. and we are not going to make any excuses for why we can't get it done. it is time to take a stand and it is time to stand for
or obama administration, all of them are guilty. and the reason they're guilty is because we aren't raising the questions. so i'd ask my colleagues, you're going to get a vote on a lot of this stuff, a lot of my amendments have bipartisan support, but we're going to vote, you get to vote on whether you think we ought to eliminate duplication. you'll have 17 separate votes on that. i'll try to wind those into two votes. vote against fixing it and then go home and tell americans you want to raise their taxes a trillion dollars. the presiding officer: the senator's time has expired. mr. coburn: and you do not want to eliminate the stupidity going on in washington. i thank the chairman and the ranking member for the time. the presiding officer: the senator from virginia. mr. warner: i just want to take one moment before i yield time to the senator from delaware to --. the presiding officer: there will be no expressions from the gallery. mr. warner: i commend my friend, the senator from oklahoma, who has made this a passion. i would acknowledge this is a challenge that transfers between administ
of president obama and this senate -- and i have to compliment my colleague senator feinstein and my former colleague senator snowe who in a bipartisan way moved us toward fuel efficiency. and this president helped us and led the way. and we are moving up toward 50 miles per gallon fuel efficiency, and that is going to really help us. but we have to do more. we have to do more because the health costs associated with climate change are heartbreaking and expensive. taking steps to reduce carbon pollution will lower our doctors' bills. when we don't have kids wheezing and gasping for air. the evidence is clear, climate change is a public health threat. now we have moved before when we've seen threats to public health. we did it on cigarettes. i was here when the congress voted to ban smoking on airplanes. let me tell you, that was a hard vote. we had all the money of the cigarette tobacco companies against us. and i want to compliment senators lautenberg and durbin. senator durbin was in the house. senator lautenberg -- this is a long time ago. but i can tell you what it was like, because i d
. barrasso: president obama set forth the goal of doubling our exports in five years. three years later we are not on the pace to achieve that gel. one problem is the e.p.a. is blocking exports. e.p.a. is blocking exports on account of the greenhouse gas eations. those exports would produce outside the united states. that is, after they leave our shores. this is a dangerous precedent. it will hurt exports of automobiles, aircraft, and heavy equipment such as tractors. these amendments prohibits federal agencies from blocking exports on account of greenhouse gas emissions. those exports would produce after they leave the united states. i ask for the yeas and nays. mrs. murray: mr. president? the presiding officer: is there a sufficient second? there appears to be a sufficient second. the senator from washington. mrs. murray: before we go to the yeas and nays, can i just say, in setting an example for the evening, i will be less than one minute. we believe this is current law. we will accept a voice vote. the presiding officer: the yeas and nays were already ordered on this amendment. does t
of an amendment of mine, amendment number 6. my amendment would hold the obama administration accountable for its recent decision to release more than 2,000 undocumented immigrants from detention centers across the country in the past month. the u.s. immigration and custom enforcement claimed they were releasing these people because it needed to reduce its average daily detention population of about 34,000 people. this is a congressionally mandated requirement. they claim they had to reduce the detention population for budgetary reasons. week after week agents were tasked to release so many individuals. at first the department of homeland security claimed that it only released a few hundred people. however, last week the director of immigration and customs enforcement admitted that the administration had misled the american people by confessing that over 2,200 aliens were actually released. they continue to stand by the excuse that budget cuts were the reason for releasing these individuals. simply blaming budget reduction as a means to turn a blind eye towards national security of the american p
